Oh thanks. I PM-ed you an upload link.
So was that helpful?
I am certain it was helpful. Thank you.
Folks get busy and social graces can take a back seat sometimes.
No worries. Just wondering.
I have a beta of mfsr for Bolts ready to test. Send me a PM if interested.
I'm interested in testing but I won't be able to get to it for a few days. Maybe not until the weekend.
And I'll send you a PM. This message should get me over 10!
Still waiting for my second Bolt to be put on my account. If they ever get around to adding it to my account, then I can mess around with this new 4TB drive in the Bolt.
I just put in a new 4TB drive in my second Bolt. I didn't get a Red screen. It came up to the guided setup after a few minutes. I'll try the MFS Reformatter Alpha on it now.
EDIT: It came up as "Invalid Apple Partition Map" when I ran the Alpha mfsr. I'm running Windows 10.
Now they're just screwing with developers by wiping a few bytes in the first sector typically used to help identify a TiVo drive. I sent you a revised version.
I just used it on the drive and the TiVo is in the process of booting up right now.
Everything was fine when I left this morning. I had setup around seventy hours of HD transfers. And I setup three, ten hour manual recordings. But it will still take a while to fill the 4TB drive up. Plus I need to repair the cable card.
MFS Reformatter 188.8.131.52 is now available.
I'm unclear on one thing... it sounds like the latest Bolt firmware will allow a bare 4TB drive to complete guided setup... is this correct? If so, why do you have to take the drive out and run MFSR on it?
Because it only sees 2TB.
Does a 3 TB drive have that problem or does it work straight up like it did on the Roamio?
3TB drives work just like a Roamio.
can i just take an image of the 500gb factory bolt drive and use paragon or another hdd image software to put that image on a 4tb drive? (resizing the partition of course to stretch to 4tb)
has anyone tried? if not, i'm willing to give it a shot. I don't see how it wouldn't work if i do a full disk image.
Won't work. Standard tools like Acronis or Paragon won't recognize the drive at all, and the partitions (more than one) that you would need to stretch use a proprietary undocumented file system developed by TiVo.
